Poll reveals Huddersfield transfer list - two former Leeds targets

Chris Wood of Leicester City

Chris Powell is keen on adding goalscorers to his team following a 3-0 defeat by Leeds United.

The Terriers currently sit 22nd position in the Championship table, having won just one game this season, and the loss to local rivals Leeds was their fourth in five games.

Scoring goals has been a big problem for the Yorkshire side this season, with just seven in eight games, and recently appointed head coach Chris Powell is keen on strengthening that particular area with use of the loan market.

The former England international has admitted that he could be looking to bring in as many as three players through the loan market in the coming weeks, whilst a deal for former Chelsea prospect Marko Mitrovic is also being considered.

With frontman James Vaughan set to miss a number of weeks through with a calf injury, the search will surely be heightened in the coming days, and to gauge public opinion, the Huddersfield Examiner ran a poll to see who would be the fans favourite to arrive at the John Smith’s Stadium.

Leicester man Chris Wood was the most popular opinion, with the forward currently struggling to make an impact with the Foxes due to the incessant form of record signing Leonardo Ulloa. Despite scoring an equaliser against Everton on the opening day of the Premier League season, Wood has started just one game for Nigel Pearson’s men - a League Cup second round defeat to Shrewsbury Town.

Two other names to receive numerous mentions were Danny Graham and Grant Holt, with both actively looking for loan deals away from Sunderland and Wigan respectively.

What is interesting with the names mentioned is the previous interest in said players from Town’s rivals Leeds - with the Whites looking at both Wood and Graham earlier this season. However, the Elland Road outfit look to have a settled squad in the current climate, and so interest in the two outcast Premier League men has died down.

Both forwards would represent good business on the part of Powell, with both Graham and Wood holding impressive striking records in the Championship. However, with division-wide interest in both, the Terriers boss would be wise to make a move sooner rather than later.
